2- It looks better with black on white. In white on black the black looks more like grey and that doesn't look too great.
3- It once stopped working (black screen) and I had to remove the battery and put it back in. That brought it back to life.\
4- In the display where you get all info I don't understand why the Date Font is so large and the clock font is so small.
5- The date format is american style i.e. you see the month on top and below it the day. I imagine they could easily have made it switchable.
6- Build is OK, Plastic strap is fine.
7- Generally OK watch but could be better. If you have a Chance to see it somewhere before you buy do that.
However, the e-ink technology in a watch face leaves something to be desired.
I was very disappointed in the phosphor watch.
1. It is too large, somewhat cumbersome.
2. It is VERY difficult to set. Either the instructions are too vague or the sequence doesn't work well, I think both.
3. There is an annoying flicker and delay when changing function 'pages'.
4. The watch suddenly stopped and went blank. Nothing would bring it back except to 'reboot' it by taking the back cover off, removing then reinserting the battery. VERY annoying.
5. The leather wrist band is all too noticeably 'cheap' Something you expect on a $9.00 WalMart throw away.
6. I expected to have the second hand display, however, you have to order a different model to get that! I REALLY did not like that.
Back to the drawing boards guys, this watch is not ready for for a sophisticated market.
Overall, extremely disappointing. I do not recommend it. Mine has been relegated to the dresser drawer!
While I generally enjoy it and it looks good on my wrist I can't help but be annoyed by its arbitrary limitations. Why can't I adjust between 24 and 12 hour on the displays? It's fixed per function display and isn't user adjustable. Want to see the time and the date? Hope you like 24hr time. In general the watch reminds me more of how a LCD watch would with with the segmented display. You know where everything is the way it is because the watch display is ultimately fixed. But this is e-ink, you should be able to customize it a lot more. The watch is also a pain in the ass to set since it only has two buttons.
I could deal with this and still enjoy the watch, but from the day I got my watch there's been a portion of the display where the colors were stuck reversed - worked fine in certain displays but others it was noticeable and looked like dead pixels on an LCD screen. I contacted Phosphor several times about the issue but never got a response from them about sending it in for a warranty so I simply returned the watch. Not a good way to make me feel comfortable about spending $200 on a watch.
Between the arbitrary limitations in display and being ignored with support I have to say this is just a letdown. Avoid this company and this watch.
--Despite e-ink the display isn't very customizable
--Terrible customer service
The overall appearance is both retro and futuristic at the same time; something that might be suitable for both the original Star Trek and its more recent incarnations. I would give this watch an "A" for style and an "A-" for the information it displays. And not a bad price!

Great Digital watch. The watch is curved and thin so it fits very well on your wrist. You can reverse the screen (white letters on black face). Read morePublished on November 20, 2012 by Larry Berardino

Nice watch, not exactly as I thought. No night viewing. Great fit with curve design and comfortable. I think there are better digital watches for the money.Published on February 22, 2011 by Mr. Andra Howard
